5.0 out of 5 stars Beethoven through fresh eyes and ears Oct. 31 2007
By J. Cegledy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Andras Schiff continues his impressive Beethoven Sonatas series. It is characterized by that rare combination of keen sensitivity to musical expression, fidelity to text and meticulous attention to detail. The articulation and lively crispness of execution is a sheer delight. There are many surprising insights that are completely convincing. Of the many great Beethoven Sonatas recordings, this can be most recommended to students as an example of how to bring the text alive without any exaggeration yet with sensitivity and depth of musical expression.

The booklets in this series are of special interest. Andras Schiff shares his outlook and insights on these works and we get a glimpse of how great interpretations evolve. For piano students as well as for lovers of these works, Andras Schiff's Beethoven Sonata series is to be highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best April 15 2013
By Mike in PDX - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
There are many fine recordings of the Beethoven piano sonatas. I very much like Schiff's interpretations, and the set is recorded in very good sound. The interpretations are not dull, but are somewhat less angry than some others, and more warm and touching in places. I recommend this -- and the other volumes in the set -- to anyone with an interest in these keystones of the piano literature. If you have other versions, these are worth adding. If you don't, these are a great place to start.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shiff Continues to Thrill July 1 2008
By Joe Murray - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Andras Schiff continues to thrill with his Beethoven Piano Sonata cycle. His lecture series on these works on the Guardian UK website explains the philosophy behind this cycle. More Urtext. Less affectation. His Op 31 is illuminating. There is something so opulent in Schiff's austerity - it is as though he strips the pieces down to their inner beauty. The Andante Favori encore of the Waldstein is a true bonus.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beethoven Piano Sonatas Opera 31 and 53 - for the Millenium March 24 2008
By S. Knappertz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A recording in the series of all Beethoven Sonatas by Andras Schiff, the current authority both through his extensive scholarship on this subject as well as his dynamic and insightful performances. Impressive are his assured use of the enormous Beethoven intended tempi, off-set by his frequently employed non-legato style, followed by lyrical development sections and dramatic interjections. The almost orchestral passages are played revering the majestic. This series will be the Beethoven Sonata series for the Millenium. Largo con gran expressione!
